New Wisenet Q flateye IR domes for high humidity or condensation-prone sites

Hanwha Techwin has launched Wisenet 5MP ‘flateye’ IR dome cameras designed for environments prone to high humidity or, because of temperature differences, condensation.

Eschewing a dome-shaped lens cover in favour of a flat alternative the Wisenet Q domes – comprising models QNE-8011R and QNE-8021 – are less susceptible to IR-diffused reflection caused by moisture and the deleterious effect of scratches on image clarity.

A new open platform chipset means some third-party applications can be run on-board the domes. Enhanced Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) like defocus and tampering detection, directional, intrusion, motion and enter/exit detection are already incorporated.


  • Wisenet QNE-8011R is equipped with a 2.8mm fixed lens, QNE-8021R with a 4mm fixed lens
  • Built-in IR functionality for object recognition at night up to a distance of 20 metres
  • True day/night (ICR) cameras with Lens Distortion Correction (LDC) in common with the rest of the Q Series
  • Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) performs at up to 120dB for image clarity in scenes containing both bright and dark areas
  • Open platform chipset can run third-party applications on the edge with Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA), such as defocus and tampering detection, as well as directional, intrusion, motion and enter/exit detection, provided as standard
  • Multiple streaming supported through H.265, H.264 or MJPEG compression
  • WiseStream II compression dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression, according to movement in the image
  • Combined with H.265 compression WiseStream II boosts bandwidth efficiency by up to 99% compared to H.264
  • Hallway View for monitoring tall and narrow vertical areas such as shopping aisles and corridors, through either 9:16 or 3:4 aspect ratios, thereby minimising bandwidth and storage requirements
  • MicroSD/SDHC/SDXC memory slot for up to 128GB edge storage
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) support avoids installation of separate power supplies and cabling for each dome
  • Compliant with ONVIF

Hanwha Techwin says

“These new H.265 models are intended to provide a robust and cost-effective solution for video surveillance projects where the end-user client wishes to capture high definition images in challenging environmental conditions, such as industrial or food processing plants,” said Uri Guterman, head of product & marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe.

“Installers will also benefit from having to spend less time on site as there is no need to initially remove and then mount a dome cap during the installation process.”
